WILSON DECIDES TO] j
CALL EXTRA SESSION

For Revision of Tariff Law.?President
Anr.onn^ec Decision in
New York, November 15.?Governor
Wilson announced tonight that immediately
after his inauguration as president
of the United States he would call
'< an extraordinary session 01 congress
to convene not later than April 15 for
the purpose of revising the tariff.
The president-elect will sail for the !
Bermuda Islands at 3 o'clock tomorrow
afternoon for a vacation and will
return December 16. To set at rest in .

he would do with regard to tariff revision,
he issued the following statement
"I shall call congress together in
extraordinary session not later than i
April 15. I shall do this not only be- ,
cause. I think that the pledges of the

' ly as possible, but also because I know
it to be in the interest of business that
all uncertainty as to what the particular
items of tariff revision are to be,
should be removed as soon as POSSihl^"
k Beyond this brief announcement the
governor said he had nothing further
to say. Most of the opinions he had
received from public men seemed to
be in favor of an extra session, he declared.
Earlier than Expected.
The governor did not intend to ex-;
press himself about an extra session j
so soon after his election. Although I
he has favored the idea of an extra ses/
sion, because the present arrangement
would not bring the new congress into
session until thirteen months after his
election, he had expected to spend j
more time in. ascertaining public opinin.
With the time to be consumed in
discussion the governor .felt that if
.an extra sefvsion were not called, the
benefits of tariff revision would be
postponed for practically two years.
Throughout the campaign the gov>
-ernor reiterated that he desired an im'

the democratic leaders know perfectly
how to proceed about* it. The gover\
nor was impressed by the augument
also that with an early announcement
as to an extra session democratic
leaders in congress could begin to take

The governor came to New York tonight
to attend the dinner given in !
his honor by his class mates, Prince-;
ton '79. He expected to have no po- i
liticai conferences, while in the metro- j
jjolis and seemed fully confident that j
he would not be disturbed by any po- j
liticai callers while resting in Ber- j
muda. All the prominent men in the
campaign just closed, the governor
^aid, know his intention of postponing
the consideration of political subjects
until his return.

Oddly enough there was a special'
car on the same train, en route from ]
Philadelphia to New York, carrying j
sixteen-business men, one of whose i
number was paying a bet of $5,000 j

phia, who won the bet, was, however,
* according to one of the conditions, to

for a party of sixteen business friends.
The governor smiled when he learned j
of the affair.
The president-elect will sail on the !
Bermudian, one of the reg- j
ular boats plying between New YorK |
and Hamilton, Bermuda. Besides the
Wilson family, a stenographer and j
three servants, there will be ten news- i

Governor Klease Writes Comprehen- -j

The editor of Lesslie's Weekly not j

three replies, including one from Gov-; j

their labors. Improved farming meth- .

South Carolina has been singularly
free from th labor troubles which
have disturbed other sections of the
couiftry. The great proportion of the
toilers in these manufacturing enterprises
are natives of the State, with
that love for South Carolina and that
jealous regard for her interests which
- - *
have ever characterized our peopie. <
In every department of activity the
people are contented?not contented in
the sense that they are not seeking
further progress, for they are; but in
the sense that they realize and appreciate

Fine progress is being made along
educational lines. The common-school
system is being improved throughout
the State, and the higher institutions
of learning are in flourishing condition.
Sentiment everywhere in the State for
improved highways is growing, and
better roads are being built, bringing)
the crops closer to the markets, uniting
closer the people of the rural districts,
^nd in every way making rural
life more attractive.
With her native population, her
splendid resources, her unexcelled climate
and her diversified industres,
South Carolina is an inviting field for '
the investment of capital, and the ^
wonderful development now going on;
in the State is evidence of the fact that
capital realizes the fine opportunity I
which is presented. Great water pow- j
ers are being put to work for material |
progress, and figures which have been
cited show that South Carolina now
has more than two hundred thousand
developed home-power of this kind. I
This development continues to go j
steadily forward furnishing the power \
for new enterprises which are being
built, for the lighting of our cities and
even many of our country homes. It is
only recently that the mineral re- j
sources of tlie state D<-gun iu
the attention which they deserve and
that their development was begun in
the manner which they warrant. Stock j
^oioi^cr fnr whiah South Carolina is j
peculiarly adapted, was long neglected, j
and even now the advantages of the'
State in this regard are only begin-1
ning to be fully realized.
The point which I want to stress is j
that, while South Carolina is experi-j
encing a wonderful prosperity, it is an j
advancing prosperity?that the State's i
cstooriiK- advanc- !

ing in almost limitless fields. This
march of industrial progress will be
given further impetus with the opening
of the Panama canal, Charleston,
South Carolina's great seaport city, being
recognized as "the most convenient
port to Panama." /
With all ii^r varied and wonderful
material wealth, however. South Carolina's
chief asset is the spirit of her
people, and it is when this is taken
